Generative AI is creating numerous new opportunities for Egnyte partners. The company works with MSPs, VARs and alliance partners.

That’s according to Kris Lahiri, Egnyte’s co-founder and chief security officer. Egnyte provides a secure platform for content collaboration and governance.

Egnyte is basically an industrial-grade Dropbox. It’s based in Silicon Valley with big-name investors like Google Ventures, and 20,000 customers, including BuzzFeed, Red Bull and Nasdaq.

New Generative AI Solutions for Egnyte Partners

In July, Egnyte unveiled several new AI-powered solutions natively integrated into its platform. Egnyte customers can use the latest generative AI models to find and summarize information contained in their company’s documents and media files, without having to physically move any of their content, which could violate corporate policies and put their data at risk.

Business users can ask Egnyte’s AI to answer questions and perform tasks related to the files they have been granted access to on Egnyte’s platform. The AI can perform tasks such as:

  • Generating summaries of large complex documents.

  • Creating text-based transcripts of audio and video files.

  • Finding photos within a business’ image library containing a particular object.

The solution leverages Egnyte’s content governance framework and private instances of various AI models to ensure both the source data and AI-generated responses adhere to each company’s security and compliance policies.


Egnyte’s Kris Lahiri

“Machine learning (ML) and AI have always been a part of Egnyte’s DNA,” Lahiri said. “We approach AI in a vendor-agnostic way, allowing us to capture structure from the content streaming into the Egnyte platform.”

Cybersecurity is essential to the Egnyte platform as the company offers data security and governance capabilities, he said.

“With organizations facing increasing cyber threats, cybersecurity is more important than ever,” Lahiri said. “To that end, Egnyte helps companies to manage and secure their business-critical data. Organizations can address a full spectrum of content risks with Egnyte, from data exfiltration and ransomware, to data privacy and compliance.”
